Computer Theft Report

This is our inaugural Computer Theft Report based on all of our theft recovery investigations in 2011. Each year, we intend to publish an update with a focus on the changes in trends. This report is based on the data we collect during our theft recovery investigations. Each time a customer contacts us to report a stolen device, a report is generated that includes information about the theft incident. Additional data is collected throughout the investigation. This provides us with an extremely rich data store specific to computer theft. With this data, we can identify trends and other pertinent facts such as the top cities and airports where Absolute customers fall victim to computer theft; that the peak months of computer theft differ for corporate versus consumer customers; and other information that is borne out after so many years working computer theft crimes.
